The virtual networks setup by libvirt run a dnsmasq process to provide
DNS + DHCP services to the guest. That said there's a missing Requires:
line in the libvirt RPM currently in rawhide so there's a good chance
you're missing dnsmasq. yum install it & 'service libvirtd restart'
or a reboot should correct that.
